Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge Gives Encouraging Update on Gordon Hayward's Return

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron James and Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart

Gordon Hayward missed all but five minutes of the season after suffering a nasty ankle injury in the season opener in Cleveland.

Now we have had a rough season as a whole with the New England Patriots losing the Super Bowl, Boston Bruins ending the playoffs in the second round and Celtics getting defeated in the Eastern Conference finals.

Irving averaged 24.4 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 60 games in his first season in Boston. "I think that the further you go in the playoffs, the harder it is to lose". And during an appearance on WEEI's "Dale & Keefe" on Friday, Ainge pointedly reiterated the importance of both Hayward and Irving.

China general slams 'irresponsible comments' on S. China Sea
Airstrips have already been constructed, and in May, China landed nuclear capable bombers on contested islands in the area. Last week the US withdrew an invitation for Beijing to participate the exercise known as Rim of the Pacific.

If Hayward and Irving are indeed able to return healthy for the beginning of the season, expectations will by sky high in Boston. I've been here for four years. What Can I say, Lebron James, Steph Curry, and Kevin Durant are talented National Basketball Association players all future Hall of Famers I'd say.

"I'm worth more than $12-14 million [per year]", Smart told ESPN's Jackie MacMullan. "He's on the court now, finally doing a little bit of competition, like just one-on-one".

"He provides a lot of energy for our team and I hope we can work something out going forward". The better your team becomes, the more sacrifices guys have to make. And he has even admitted that he wants to stay in Boston. I always leave everything on the court, every game. "At this time a year ago, I didn't think we would have 11 new players".

The French pharmaceutical giant Sanofi was quick to push back - trolling Barr in an acerbic post that quickly went viral. ABC canceled the hit sitcom on Tuesday after the show's biggest star, Roseanne Barr , went on a racist Twitter rant.

Due to injuries to Irving, Hayward, Daniel Theis and Shane Larkin, as well as the ineffectiveness of Greg Monroe, Stevens stuck mostly with only seven players as the conference finals progressed.

Team president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Monday that Irving was recovering from deviated septum surgery - a nasal procedure.

Irving had suffered a fracture in November which required him to wear a mask.

Israel responds to Gaza fire with dozens of airstrikes
United Nations special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, Nickolay Mladenov, also blamed the attacks on Tuesday. Israeli fire has killed more than 110 Palestinians, majority during the Hamas-led protests , which climaxed on May 14.
